It sounds like the CW limit switch is stuck open. You can wire around the limit switch at the control head as a test (see the manual for which wires go to the limit switch and simply jumper across th

These are easy to rebuild yourself. The rebuilders will happily sell you the parts as will MFJ. If the races in the housing look good, and youre inclined, go for it. I have two in case one quit and I

This is a good point. While you can buy new ball bearings and they arent too expensive, as you disassemble it, do it in a bucket so they dont go as far. Kim N5OP "People that make music together cann

This will be challenging. You need very hard bits (real cobalt bits, not just the gold colored ones), plenty of cutting oil, patience (because youll have to go slow), and lots of stamina (because as
